Some of the books that you are seeing with no title were accidentally put into the Americana Collection and ended up in the RSS feed. Sorry for that. Another reason that some of these titles have [no title] is because when the item is entered into our system before being scanned we are unable to find a bibliographic record for the item. Not until later is a record entered by hand. We are currently working to curb less [notitle] items in the OpenSource collections.

Thank You,

Many thanks. I suppose getting these titles in by hand must be tedious, but it is appreciated. I look forward to see what shows up.

Thank you for your understanding. We work hard to make sure that we are getting to you the best items that we can. Unfortunately we run into a few glitches in the system that we try to work out to make sure that we are not giving you a bunch of junk. It is a tremendous project with few people. Please thank the scanners in San Francisco, Toronto, Los Angeles, Illinois, and soon New York City. All of their hard work and dedication to bring you the best quality scans and for digitizing a vast wealth of information that will live on for generations should not be overlooked.

Thanks again,
